I took a study break and watched it to, lots of good coverage, it is a pity that they only covered the two main classes though.

Discokid on this site had a bit of footage - the car looked awesome.

Looks like a great event - and as said fantastic scenery.

Dave.

I saw the last half of it.

Was that DiscoKid in the Defender Ute?

Some great footage!

The TV show was good but I wasnt sure if they were promoting a holiday in WA or racing!

It brought back a lot of memories of good times had on the safari

I just need to work out what we are doing next year and whether we are going or not

So many good races not enough time or money
